Name: Khali Saenrik.
Place of Birth: Undasien Regiment.Physical Characteristics: Changelings are humanoid creatures who originate from the areas of the Undasien regiment where few tread and are descendants of human-Shifter bonds --Shifters being a race with superior abilities to those of Changelings. These beings possess off white to dark gray skin and essentially human characteristics normally. However, there is something unique about these beings, despite being born with a humanoid countenance and physical structure, they are uniquely resistant to both cold and heat to an extent at least twice that to humans. Their eyes would appear to be blind, but in actuality their white orbs, with black sclera, are designed to absorb light, but not to see. Instead they send the photons back out, which they can learn to control the direction of, so as to bounce them off of structures which allows them to see. They have a unique ability to understand spatial arrangements and those who train to control their photon bouncing capabilities can actually see in a near 360 degree circle around their body, however, the 180 degrees behind them do not allow the same max range of vision and tend to appear blurry when processed by their brain(s).
Physically, Changelings are typically less naturally fit than humans, but they are naturally agile, flexible, and more durable as their bones are more dense and structurally sound allowing them to fall from greater heights and take more punishment without breaking. Their other senses are essentially the same as those possessed by humans, with the exclusion of their natural ability to detect energies. They can detect the source of energy in an area with a margin of 30 degrees or so in a cone. The stronger the energy source, or the energy, the easier it is for them to track. This is apparently perceived, by their strange eyes, as wispy smoke-like trails in the air. However, it should be noted that this physical state is merely how they are born, for all Changelings are, like their name suggests, capable of altering their physical appearance. This is caused by their skin and the layers below as well as an application of essence. This allows them to alter their body, even in height, physique, and weight, to that of essentially anything reasonably humanoid. They cannot grow new limbs or tails or the like. They can also use this ability to camouflage themselves, but this is something they would need to learn.
Beyond this, Changeling's max age is around 150 or so an they mature around the same time as humans, but age slower due to their naturally ambient essence. However, most are killed prior to this 150 year limit as they tend to be assassins, spies, or thieves due to their capabilities.
Spiritual Characteristics: As briefly mentioned, Changelings possess more Essence then the average human, enough to allow them to, alter themselves physically with little effort. However, strangely, very few Changelings manifest any essence, or otherwise, related abilities beyond this and it is considerably rare to see a Changeling wield magic. This is considered even more strange by those who have studied them and their ancestry as one would think that mixing the incredibly magical nature of the Shifters with the incredible potential of humans would cause an advance potential for magic. This is not so, or at least not on initial observation for there is in fact something intriguing about Changelings when it comes to their energetic, or spiritual, nature. They are advanced. Very very advanced, in the sense that their auras are at least twice as large as they ought to be in relation to their physical size. Additionally, their astral, or energetic, form, and soul, is incredibly difficult to even analyze due to the amount of connections and complex energies that make them up. This has lead scientists, spiritualists, and other specialists to believe that should one encounter a Changeling who is capable of magics, even if they seem to be minor, that they should be immediately considered at least twice, if not more, as powerful to their human counterparts, and better, if not equal, to their ancestral cousins, the Shifters.
Mental Characteristics: Likely as a reaction to their Shifter heritage and advanced spiritual nature, most Changelings possess intellect that, by human standards, would be considered far above the average. While not all geniuses, those who are, among the ranks of their kin, considered exceptionally intelligent would be the equivalent of human genius. Otherwise they are mentally about the same as humans, with the exclusion of them having a slightly more advanced ability to perceive stimuli, since they have to be capable of doing so for their unique sight to function correctly.
Racial History: A product of human-shifter breeding programs, the Changelings started as test subjects and, eventually, with the assistance of a member of their own now talked about reverently as a legend, they escaped. Their escape from the facilities in The Akaizen Republic is referred to, by other races, as 'The Grey Outbreak', while it is more positively called the Uprising from their standpoint. Essentially becoming a fugitive race, the Changelings, led by the one who is now known only as 'Shaehan' (translating as Brightest Shadow), eventually found their own form of safe haven within the confines of the Undasien Regiment where they have since dwelled. Their people and those of the Akaizen Republic have a fading feud-like political relationship and friendliness is seldom the norm between humans, or other races, of that political affiliation. Merely originating from Akaizen is enough to earn the dislike of most Changelings.
While the more recent generation of Changelings hold Shaehan in less of a reverent manner, insulting him to their face would still likely result in the death of the perpetrator as it is still more or less considered blasphemous to insult Shaehan's name or any of his deeds. While the legend is somewhat vague, as it has been around a century or two since their escape, it appears that the individual was likely the first example of a Changeling capable of advanced magics. He, and the few others --the number of which can be counted on one hand--, are the primary reason that Changeling magic-users are regarded as incredibly dangerous individuals, though they are in fact obscenely rare. The last one to appear lived around a century or so ago...and it is due time that another rears its head.
Societal Norms & Mentality: Changeling society is generally rather calm as with each other they are generally comfortable. Different from humans, Changelings are intensely spiritual causing them to have developed the belief in a menagerie of greater, and largely unseen and undetected, forces that rule over the world through the astral plane effecting the physical one. While Changelings generally dislike humans, they do not have much of anything against the Shifters, who were essentially raped to conceive them, and believe their ancestral counterparts to be of a status similar to saints, as they did several times attempt to raid the research facility that was once their home. Changelings treat one another with respect, lest they find them at one another's throats. This brings one to understand that changelings have a moderate temper, but a cold one that allows them an intense deadly calm while enraged beyond belief.
Changeling society has nothing against interracial breeding, as long as they are not humans, or beings of Akaizen origin it tends to be fine. As to how they govern themselves, well, generally they like to form small communities, each of which is led by several wise men and women. There is of course a process to deciding these individuals, but that is a detail one would have to ask a Changeling.
Essence Ability: Refer to the intro for information. Make sure any ability you have is EXPLAINED. I want descriptions people.
Personality: Khali is, by his race's standards, a reckless person. He is generally fun-loving and simply out for the pleasures of life, not to mention the knowledge he feels is inherent in all things. He seeks out experience and the like with a so far well rewarded passion. He is hardened, though it does not show, and can easily --with little remorse-- kill if he must do so. He enjoys combat, but if he can avoid it and instead enjoy other more painless activities he certainly will. Oddly despite having grown up in the dark and sometime terrifying Undasien regiment, he is kind and strangely giving to those he meets. However, like the majority of his kind, he does not particularly like the company of Akaizenians. However, unlike his kind he does not downright hate them, it is merely a dislike he feels towards the individuals. However, when it comes to humans Khali tends to be less willing to trust them. While he does not treat them with particular violence or the like, he would certainly take a chance to insult them readily.
He is not easily angered, by anyone, as long as his kind are not sighted and even then it would be difficult to truly rile his fiery near-mindless rage.
